The Infiltrators (2019)
NAME OF FILM: THE INFILTRATORS
DIRECTOR(S): Cristina Ibarram, Alex Rivera
STARRING: Mohammad Abdollahi, Maynor Alvarado, Roman Arabia
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: The Infiltrators is an unlikely blend of activism and suspense that makes a compelling case for the abolishment of ICE. Instead of fleeing in the other direction, members of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance purposely get themselves detained. Once inside a for-profit transitional center in Florida they work to help others, and document injustice while never losing sight of the human suffering caused by an inhumane system that separates families and imprisons people without trials.
Watch trailer for The Infiltrators, the docu-thriller that tells the true story of young immigrants thrown into a shadowy for-profit prison on purpose.
